The computer image-generation

After the age of 2D, the new century came. In my opinion, this is a big step that people want to create something more likes themselves, and making it looks like as much as the same, not as the old aesthetic style of how it looks.

Tin Toy is a 1988 American computer-animated short film produced by Pixar. The short film, which runs five minutes, stars Tinny, a tin one-man-band toy, attempting to escape from Billy, a destructive baby.

The short premiered in a partially completed edit at the SIGGRAPH convention in August 1988 to a standing ovation from scientists and engineers. Tin Toy went on to claim Pixar’s first Oscar with the 1988 Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, becoming the first CGI film to win an Oscar. With the award, Tin Toy went far to establish computer animation as a legitimate artistic medium outside SIGGRAPH and the animation-festival film circuit. Tin Toy was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” in 2003.

Wow look at the strange baby, I’d say I prefer the tin toy, because the baby is so wearied thus makes me feel scared. But from the technology level, this surely is a great improvement at that time.
